    Kyle is one raw athlete with brute strength, never ending endurance, and mixed with his skill level a WOD can never feel safe. What overshadows all that is how likable he his. Kyle is always self deprecating while building up those around him up. He’s one of few that can smile and laugh in the middle of a painful WOD cause he’s got it all in perspective. You’re one of a kind dude and it’s better for everyone when you’re around.

    I’m not sure what to brag on most — the fact that Kyle is a super impressive, natural athlete with incredible strength and skill, or the fact that he is hands down one of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever hope to meet. He’s always smiling, always positive, and always the first one to finish and the last one to stop cheering others on. You rock, Kyle! 🙂

    I once watched Kyle do heavy grace like it was an empty bar with a smile his face the whole time and no gloves believe it or not

      Kyle is the man, they don’t come any nicer than him. He can do a whole lot of WBS in 4 minutes too.
